Absolutely Dangling after todays run!
All this weekend Ive been trying not to start a course of Flucloxacillin after a pretty sizeable horse fly left a fucking hole in my Leg on Thursday!
I have been feeling pretty rough for a couple of days, but fortunately the swelling, heat and redness has now gone, and I no long have tracking up my leg. I wanted to see if my immune system could handle the infection without the use of antibiotics.
It sounds daft, but it’s not as if I’m on operations at the moment and feeling rough over the weekend is small price to pay in the prevention of antibiotic resistant infections.
On a positive note I can now recognise how I feel when I have an infection and I guess this will help me recognise it if I see the symptoms in any future patients! #alwayslearning
Anyway I was feeling pretty weak today to say the least... Not only that, my Strava has stopped doing that voice overlay thing so I had no idea of pace or distance.. I think I set off a bit quick at the start. (If anyone knows how to turn it back on, DM me!)
But again trying to remain positive, I’m learning to judge pace and rough distance without technology so I’m being forced to tap into different sources of motivation which is always a good thing.
Ah well there is plenty of time to get distance up and the times down before the Great North Run in September (see link in bio)
At the moment it’s just good to get out, clear the head, detox from the weekend and get some miles in my legs! Got to #stayhumble You can’t be at your best all of the time! Just got to accept it and learn to say good! (Type good and JOCKO on YouTube @jockowillink ) And be grateful for any lessons that you can take away from the experience.
